HERAT, AFGHANISTAN (WKOW) -- Taliban militants attacked a U.S. consulate in western Afghanistan early Friday morning.
The attackers used a car bomb and guns to battle security forces just outside the compound in the city of Herat.
It was not entirely clear whether any attackers managed to breach the facility, but at least two Afghans were killed along with five alleged militants.
The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack.
